Good news, for me


I went to a sheep fair on Sunday...and there was a lacemaker there! I was really pleased, she teaches, and is prepared to give me lessons. Look at this lace, made with wool. It is a special wool that hasn't been carded, and so it isn't as elastic as normal wool.

This is similar to Honiton, or perhaps it is Honiton, we couldn't discuss it at the time, but I am so happy to think I will at last be able to improve my lacemaking!
And this is a little motif in the Peace HDT, but it still isn't the right colour. The motif is called "Rose des Vents" which seemed suitable.
